Excerpt from Wichita Falls, Texas:
The Fort Worth and Denver Railroad reached Wichita Falls in 1882.

In the first quarter of the 20th century, the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad as well as the Fort Worth and Denver made Wichita Falls their headquarters.

During the oil boom multiple tracks were laid to Burkburnett and two additional railroads (The Wichita Falls and Northwestern and the Wichita, Ranger and Fort Worth) were financed by oil money.
